Many times, you required to show information of each transaction and also keep a Running Total and Final Total like GridView in Asp.Net. In this article, I am going to explain, how can you achieve this using SQL Query in simple and easy way.

Suppose you have the below CustomerOrders table and has the data as shown below:

CREATE TABLE CustomerOrders
 OrderID int identity,
 Amount Decimal(8,2),
 OrderDate SmallDatetime default getdate()

 INSERT INTO CustomerOrders(Amount) Values(120.12)
 INSERT INTO CustomerOrders(Amount) Values(20.12)
 INSERT INTO CustomerOrders(Amount) Values(10.12)
 INSERT INTO CustomerOrders(Amount) Values(30.12)
 INSERT INTO CustomerOrders(Amount) Values(40)

 SELECT * FROM CustomerOrders

Calculating Running Total

Let's see how to calculate the running total using SQL Query as given below:

 select OrderID, OrderDate, CO.Amount
 ,(select sum(Amount) from CustomerOrders 
 where OrderID <= CO.OrderID)
 'Running Total'
from CustomerOrders CO

Calculating Final Total

Let's see how to calculate the final total using ROLLUP with in SQL Query as given below:

SELECT OrderID, SUM(Amount) AS Amount
FROM CustomerOrders

Calculating Total of All Numeric columns in a row

Let's see how to calculate the total of all numeric fields with in a row using SQL Query as given below:

SELECT OrderID, Amount, SUM(OrderID+Amount) AS RowNumericColSum
FROM CustomerOrders
GROUP BY OrderID,Amount
What do you think?

I hope you will enjoy the tips while writing query in SQL Server. I would like to have feedback from my blog readers. Your valuable feedback, question, or comments about this article are always welcome.

Calculating Final Total

SELECT coalesce(convert(varchar(max),OrderID),'Total') as ORDID, SUM(Amount) AS Amount

FROM CustomerOrders


This may look more good.
